  • Islamic Aesthetics: An Introduction

    Sert Kapak
    “This is a useful and imaginative project . . . Leaman is an accomplished and productive author and the book will be of genuine and considerable interest.” —Lenn E. Goodman, Vanderbilt University It is often argued that a very special sort of consciousness went into creating Islamic art, that Islamic art is very different from other forms of art, that Muslims are not allowed to portray human beings in their art, and that calligraphy is the supreme Islamic art form. Oliver Leaman challenges all of these ideas, and argues that they are misguided. Instead, he suggests that the criteria we should apply to Islamic art are identical to the criteria applicable to art in general, and that the attempt to put Islamic art into a special category is a result of orientalism. Leaman criticizes the influence of Sufism on Islamic aesthetics and contends that it is generally misleading regarding both the nature of Islam and artistic expression. He discusses issues arising in painting, calligraphy, architecture, gardens, literature, films, and music and pays close attention to the teachings of the Qur’an. In particular he asks what it would mean for the Qur’an to be a miraculous literary creation, and he analyzes two passages in the Qur’an—those of Yusuf and Zulaykha (Joseph and Zuleika) and King Sullayman (Solomon) and the Queen of Sheba. His arguments draw on examples from history, art, philosophy, theology, and the artefacts of the Islamic world, and raise a large number of difficulties in the accepted paradigms for analyzing Islamic art.

  • L'Art des chevaliers en pays d'Islam

    Sert Kapak
    Tous les textes de chroniqueurs évoquant la vie à la cour ou relatant les visites d'ambassadeurs étrangers dans les cours islamiques, rendent compte de la magnificence des costumes, du cérémonial, de la majesté du souverain dont la puissance paraît presque surnaturelle. Cet aspect irréel, quelque peu terrifiant, était accentué par la présence d'un masque métallique fixé au casque. L'usage d'un tel masque existait déjà à la période hellénistique...

Welby Pugin is perhaps best known for his work on the Houses of Parliament in the neo-Gothic style, he also produced a wealth of beautiful ecclesiastical designs that hark back to their medieval roots.These spectacular color plates, displaying a selection of Pugin's religious motifs, provide graphic artists with a magnificent sourcebook of ideas. This new anthology reveals Pugin's masterful use of pattern, color, and ornamentation—as presented in hundreds of designs that embellish altar cloths, crosses, and church vestments.

  • Solomon's Temple: Myth and History

    Solomon's Temple: Myth and History

    Sert Kapak
    The only up-to-date illustrated account of one of the most intriguing and influential buildings in history.The Temple of Solomon has been the focus of profound spiritual reverence for over three thousand years. From its Bronze Age antecedents in the portable shrines of nomadic tribes, through countless permutations in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, the idea of the Temple of Solomon—a place of communion between God and man—has proven endlessly alluring.The sacred building itself was destroyed more than once, on the last occasion by the Romans in AD 70, yet the great church of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, the headquarters of the Templars, and numerous medieval cathedrals were all conceived as symbolic re-creations of Solomon's original. Medieval magicians practiced magic to harness the demons who were believed to have constructed the Temple, and mystics of all faiths had visions of a celestial Temple, mirroring that on earth, where divine secrets would be revealed.Solomon's Temple draws on holy texts and mystic writings, works of art and architecture, modern reconstructions, and photographs to reveal the myriad ways in which the Temple and the sacred ground on which it stood have inspired mankind through the ages. 200 illustrations, 130 in color.
